1969 Peugeot 204 Cabriolet

There are times when I'm really glad that I'm not independently wealthy and don't have a 10 car garage. It saves me from buying a car like this...

What a cool little car...

The 204 was a small FWD Peugeot. Introduced in 1965, it came with an 1100cc aluminum 4 cylinder engine that put out around 53 HP. As the seller points out, it was the first Peugeot to feature disc brakes. It was never officially imported to the US.

Although it's tough to tell from the pictures in this ad, the Pininfarina styled body is very attractive, especially in coupe and convertible form.

The seller does not include the history of this car in his ad. He also says very little about its condition. It needs restoration and it sounds like he's including a parts car in the deal. Rust was a huge issue on these cars, but I don't see anything obvious on this one in the blurry pictures. There are a few primer spots that may be covering some rust repair, however.

If you live in the Los Angeles area and are a Peugeot fan, this car is probably worth seeking out. Click here to see the Craigslist ad.

As a man who is known for his lack of proofreading and typos, I have no business pointing this out, but the Craigslist ad is pretty amusing to read.

A big thanks to Jon for pointing this car out to me.
